This Christmas I made a Darth Vader tree.
When I was making the cape I thought “Aaaaahhh! This can be re-purposed into a Frank cape.’ So I made it with two seams down the back and pleats (thanks to Mina again!).
Once the tree came down, I added the silver lame lining and made the collar (with buckram to stiffen it).
I added shoulder pads, sewed up the lining, hemmed it and it was finished!
